Ravens tight end Mark Andrews was missing again at practice Wednesday, the team’s first full workout since its Nov. 7 win over the Saints.
Andrews has been dealing with shoulder and knee injuries, which forced him to miss the Week 9 game in New Orleans, the first injury-related absence of his career. The All-Pro leads the team in receptions in receiving yards.
Running back Gus Edwards (hamstring), also sidelined for Week 9, returned to practice along with outside linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul (ankle), who was limited to seven snaps against the Saints. Edwards, who’s averaging 4.9 yards per carry, was hurt late in the Ravens’ Week 8 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Five other active-roster players were missing Wednesday: left tackle Ronnie Stanley, defensive lineman Calais Campbell, outside linebacker Justin Houston and cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Jalyn Armour-Davis. Practice squad wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who left the win over New Orleans with a hamstring injury, also was missing. Some veterans typically take rest days early in the week of practice.
Asked about the team’s injured players after its Week 10 bye, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said Monday that “they all have a real good chance” of playing Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. He’s scheduled to meet with reporters after practice Wednesday.
